The most-played sound bite from President Obama’s speech last week about government-paid parental leave was that we should follow France’s lead. But by injecting himself into the conversation (something he is wont to do), he made some remarks that could be seen as ironic.
He said “one of the best perks about being president is anybody will hand you their baby.” And: “So I get this baby fix two or three times a week.” Pro-lifers, at least, would consider this awkward. But he didn’t stop there.
After recalling his experiences with his infant daughters, he said: “And I want every father and every child to have that opportunity.”

That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
